Scoutmaster-Update
In person meeting – 7:00pm to 8:30 pm
We’ll be outside or on Zoom for the foreseeable future, so we’ll try to push meetings a bit earlier.  As a heads up, as the weather gets colder and the days get shorter we will alternate.
 
Campfire – 
The Minutemen stepped up last meeting with an awesome campfire.  As a reminder, for every outdoor meeting, we will have a small campfire.  Each week a patrol will be chosen to show up early and start the fire, then douse it at the end of the meeting.
This will help you with your fire building skills as well as providing light and warmth.
This week’s Patrol – THE NUKES  Please be at the church at 6:30 to start the fire.  Don’t forget to bring matches and maybe some tinder!
 
Rock Climbing – Sugarloaf Mountain,
 
“That was AWESOME”  quote from numerous Scouts
 
We camped, we hiked, we climbed, we tried the slackline!  A great trip all around.  As a reminder:
Return your gear tomorrow!  Dry and clean.
DRY YOUR TENTS – if you borrowed a troop tent, it must be 100% dry before you return it.  If you don’t, you get a smelly tent next time……
October 24 Troop Camporee
Initiative games, signoffs with older scouts, maybe some bridge building – we’ve got big ideas.
GENERAL TROOP MEETING INFO:
Bring your headlamps – it’s getting dark earlier!  NOTE:  We are talking about starting the meetings earlier due to daylight concerns.  More to come
We will continue meeting outside for the foreseeable future.
Bring your Scoutbooks- there are always Scouts and Adult Leaders available for signoffs
Blue Cards!  Did you know that your Scoutmaster can email you a blue card?  Just send me an email!  Note that the SCOUT must request the blue card.  Not the parent!
